Abstract : A novel coronavirus infection (known as “COVID-19”) is an emerging infectious disease that has been declared as public health emergency of international concern in March 2020. The severity of COVID- 19 varies, from mild to severe. Lack of information, unfavorable attitude, going into crowded places, and inappropriate mask utilization could lead to exacerbated transmission of the pandemic. To assess the level of knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) toward COVID-19 prevention among university students during the COVID-19 outbreak. A cross-sectional study was conducted between November 1st and December 1st, 2020, at the Arab American University of Palestine. An online questionnaire was sent to all registered undergraduate students via the student's websites in each faculty and Facebook groups. The questionnaire was composed of two parts: Sociodemographic part and knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) towards Covid-19 part. Descriptive and differential statistics were used as statistical analysis. The results of the 12 Knowledge questions responses showed that percentage of the correct answers were between 45.3% and 95%. Knowledge scores significantly differed across genders, residency type, and among different colleges. Attitudes of students have been assessed, 97.2% expressed believe and confidence in controlling COVID -19 infection through handwashing. Regarding practice, respondents have complied with some preventative measures (77%). This study showed a higher knowledge, higher positive attitudes toward COVID-19. Practices of university students toward the virus were extremely cautious, but not optimal, and poor practice for certain recommended preventive measures was noticed..

Abstract : Acquired aplastic anemia is a fatal disorder with a higher prevalence in Indian population compared to west. Eltrombopag combined with standard immunosuppressive therapy has shown improved response and survival with a reasonable safety. However, the studies exploring the response and safety in Indian setting is limited. Hence, this study evaluated the effectiveness and safety of eltrombopag, added to standard immunosuppression in Indian patients with acquired aplastic anemia. Patients (>5 years) of either sex with acquired aplastic anemia, who received eltrombopag in addition to standard immunosuppression with antithymocyte globulin/cyclosporine were included for this retrospective case record analysis. The complete, partial and overall hematologic response at 3 and 6 months were measured. Other outcomes evaluated in the study were survival and adverse events reported during 6 months of study period. Of 22 patients, both males and females were in equal proportion. The mean age was 35.1 years. Eleven (50%) patients had severe aplastic anemia, four had very severe aplastic anemia and seven patients had non-severe aplastic anemia. For newly diagnosed patients, the frontline use of eltrombopag with standard Immunosuppressive therapy at a dose of 100-150 mg/day for 6 months led to an overall response rate of 86.4% and a complete response of 31.8% at 6 months. Adverse effects included dyspepsia, and liver function derangement. Eltrombopag was well tolerated without significant side-effects mandating drug withdrawal. In a routine hematological clinical practice at an Indian Tertiary-Care setting, the use of eltrombopag in aplastic anemia patients is feasible, safe, and associated with favorable responses..

Abstract : In the past decade’s research has been done about church associated hospitals. This includes researchers such as [7], [12], [14], [11]. It is of great interest to note that this research in particular is one of the few with in-depth information about the role of church associated hospitals on the health system of Zimbabwe, in the new millennium. It is also one research which evaluates church associated hospitals as a collective. The health sector of Zimbabwe is made up of government hospitals and clinics, mission hospitals and clinics, municipal hospitals and clinics, as well as private hospitals and clinics. Zimbabwe health service delivery is established at four levels primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary. The Primary Health Care (PHC) is the main vehicle through which health care programs are implemented in the country. Considering the fact that this research was carried out in 2020 -2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic a time where there is high demand of health. Many people have inequitable access to adequate health care, and many governments are unable to provide such care universally. Zimbabwe faces many health challenges such as HIV, tuberculosis (TB), malaria, family planning and child immunization. Zimbabwe also experiences economic problems, doctors strike and natural disasters. These problems contribute significantly to maternal and childhood illness and deaths..

Abstract : The anterior minimal invasive surgery (AMIS) technique in total hip arthroplasty (THA) have reported success with early recovery with this approach. Our study is to report the clinical and functional outcomes for AMIS technique in THA. A prospective cohort study was performed on a group of 18 hips from 15 patients who underwent THA with AMIS from February 2015 to May 2020 with at least of two-year follow-up post- surgery. The clinical and functional outcomes were measured with Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Oxford Hip Score (OHS), Harris Hip Scores (HHS), intraoperative blood loss, surgical drain, duration of surgery and duration of hospital stay. The average for pre-operative VAS was 7.5 (SD: 1.09), 6 months’ post-surgery was 0.56 (SD: 1.04) and 2 years’ post-surgery, 0.27 (SD: 0.59). The average of OHS pre-surgery was 20.33 (SD: 8.75), 6 months’ post-surgery was 43.61 (SD: 6.92) and 2 years’ post-surgery, 43.87 (SD:7.23). The average of HHS pre-surgery was 45.0 (SD: 18.23), 6 months’ post-surgery was 90.28 (SD: 18.54) and 2 years’ post- surgery, 90.67 (SD: 20.78). The perioperative parameters measured were average of intraoperative blood loss of 216.7ml (SD: 45.37), average of 160.8ml (SD: 133.55) blood loss in surgical drain, average duration of surgery was 126.1 minutes (SD: 16.49) and mean duration of hospitalization was 5.6 days (SD: 2.23). THA with AMIS gives good clinical and functional outcomes with low complication therefore it is a strong consideration for total hip arthroplasty..

Abstract : The prevalence of diabetes in Morocco is especially high in the eastern region and has been increasing in recent years, hence the need for an in-depth study of this population. Our objective is to study the risk factors of diabetes and its complications in the eastern region. 3976 diabetics were included in this retrospective study. Clinical, biological, therapeutic and anthropometric data were collected from patient records. The mean age of the patients was 56.24 years (± 16.36 SD), with a clear predominance of females 65%. According to the type of diabetes, type 2 diabetes remains by far the most frequent pathology with (92%). The frequency of complications is around 1/3. One diabetic out of four has at least one modifiable cardiovascular risk factor: arterial hypertension at 25.35%, dyslipidemia at 12.67%, overweight and obesity at 35.48% and 27.8%. The most discriminating factors in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications in order of importance are age of diabetes, hypertension, Hb1c and dyslipidemia, statistically significant associations were found with p 0.0082, 0.0001, 0.002, 0.0001 respectively). Then a multifactorial analysis coupled with a hierarchical ascending classification (CAH) in birth data to two large groups of diabetics with complications and those without complications. This report highlights the extent of diabetes and its complications in the eastern region. In this respect, a national program declined at the regional level for the reduction of environmental risk factors must be considered in the short term..
